Preparing Students for Exams: Using Time Effectively
The following are revision strategies suggested by staff and shared on the collaborative Exam Preparation document. How many have you tried?
With minimal time remaining, use what you have left effectively by:
- Live marking: mark short exam answers in the lesson
- Use a visualiser or scan in model answers and ask students to compare their own responses to it, making the appropriate corrections as necessary.
- Negotiate a class list: Top 5 topics left to revise that are still causing us difficulties as a class.
- Build confidence: award praises as much as possible, phone home to celebrate small gains, email a student and tell them something they have done well.
